The virtues of choosing handcrafted British interiors

In times gone by, purchasing furniture almost always involved selecting unique designs that would add personality to your home. Yet, the rise of the flat pack quickly equated to a surge in cheap, convenience buys. Houses lost their individuality, the personality of the family was lost behind wades of mass-produced MDF. But, this doesn’t have to be so for your home.


A British designer that creates distinctive, one of a kind pieces, comes to auction this July, with over 3000 items on sale. All of the listed interiors are of ex-showroom stock, yet, remain unique, and a fine example of current craftsmanship. Inspired by a lifelong relationship with antiques, a respect of time-honoured techniques, and a fondness for British heritage, the range adopts classic styles and reinvents them to produce authentic, contemporary collections.


Every item at auction is expertly made by hand, using traditional methods that have a proven history for successfully producing the finest of furniture. Each step of the production process involves intricate, labour-intensive handcraftsmanship, deliberate complexity that results in superlative structure and the most beautiful of finishes. Such is that luxury handcrafted items are guaranteed to be exquisite additions to your home, enhancing your living environment with an enchanting ambience.


As well as the distinctive characteristics, and the stunning aesthetic qualities of each piece, handcrafted furniture is designed with durability in mind. Specifically sourced raw materials, from every corner of the world, guarantee remarkable ranges made from the best resources available. Soft, supple leathers obtained from South American plains, reclaimed pines taken from barren old English barns, metals subject to cutting, moulding, welding and several hours of polishing, are fused to create simply timeless interiors. No matter the purchase you choose to make at auction, you are selecting a trusty investment piece, one that will serve your home for years to come.


Purchase handcrafted pieces that are built to last at the Pro Auction sale, which takes place over three days between the 18 and 20 July 2017 at The Furniture Makers Hall 12 Austin Friars, London EC2N 2HE. With over 3000 items being offered, both by traditional auction and by online bidding, this is an opportunity not to be missed!
